If you know anything about NASCAR in the late 80's up to the early 2000's you remember the yellow Kodak 4 car... That car is from the iconic Morgan McClure Motorsports race team, co owned by Larry McClure and Tim Morgan based in Abingdon Virginia. The team has not been active in some time now but the relics of the past remain. We ride around town with Larry as he reminisces about the wild ride and shows us every race shop the race team had occupied ever since their beginnings in 1983!

      AMEN TO THAT BROTHER! For me watching a NASCAR race has become painful. Way too much regulation by the governing body of NASCAR!

      Love watching this kind of stuff, thanks for what you're doing, I don't watch today's Nascar racing, to much has been taken away and changed to the point it doesn't even seem like a race anymore

    See my other comment as well. This was so awesome, I really enjoyed it. It makes me miss the last of THE GOOD DAYS of nascar all the more. ( I'm sure I'm speaking for hundreds of thousands of lifelong race fans when I say I am so disgusted with how they totally wrecked our once beloved motor sport. ) BIG THANKS ALSO TO LARRY McCLURE FOR BEING SO KIND & GRACIOUS TO SHARE HIS SLICE OF "THE GOOD OLE DAYS" WITH US. It means a lot to me. 2 THUMBS UP!!!

    Great video Mitchell and Logan. I was a big Nascar fan during this era and its wonderful to hear from the people themselves how things were during that time. And it's great to see another generation take such an interest to learn how things were then.

    We used to drive by their last shop off of 81 everytime we went to Bristol. They used to have a bodyshell of a car on a pole that you could see from the highway. Thanks again for the great videos.

    I love these videos, what history! Having been a NASCAR fan since the 80s, these videos bring up a lot of memories. It's super cool to see 'where are they now' for a lot of these people, and get to see the shops and facilities these teams used. Fascinating to me. Thanks Mitchell and Logan for doing these!

    Growing up in Australia we didn't get much nascar racing on our TV stations, maybe the week after the race we got a minute or 2 minute highlight package. But out of that I got to know some of the drivers names, Darryl Earnhardt being my favourite, Richard Petty in the STP colours and other drivers, but we never heard anything on the teams, so I'm loving these video logs. We had one purpose built Nascar track in Australia and it was 20 minutes from my home but it never took off. Track is still there, I have a funny feeling Bill Elliott raced there, Must check that one day. Cheers and thank you to you both.. I kept dropping your IRglo name in lookout racing live chat at Yello Belly. When Lookout, Lookout (I can't remember his name) question me on putting your IRglo in his live stream, I told him you had over 200,000 subs, he died in the arse and told his live chat that if Stapleton42 can have that many subs they doing something right. I also dropped your IRglo Channel in MotorMania live chat, Blendline media live chat. Hope it brings your more subscribers. God Bless Maddy and Yourself It helps people like me with health problems to take their minds off things. Cheers Mark.

    Very cool. Neat to hear Larry’s take on when the engineers got involved and the super teams took over. I never missed a race back in the 80s and 90s if possible either being there live or watching on tv. Thanks for these video’s.

    That was an awesome interview with Mr. McClure. I was glued to the screen! I just can't get enough of hearing men like this recalling those glory years.

    Visited this shop back in the 90s right after Ernie Irvan had won a road course race on the way to Bristol. Place was immaculate. Tony Glover (Irvans crew chief)came out and met us. Always look over there when traveling South on 81 on our trips to Tennesssee

    Watching these videos shows the history of the death of Nascar and I'm a super fan from the late 70s too about 2012 I either watched or went too or even listened on a radio in my tree stand every race between those years no matter what I was doing! But in the last 10 years I can count on my two hands how many I've watched and I have not been too a race in over ten years and it breaks my heat to say this!

    Really great content that HoF should really consider archiving. Seriously. A lot of work, effort and heart goes into this and the information that is communicated is unique. For future purposes of establishing history or researching events, teams, cars, etc, this can be really helpful. It is info from THE people and the oral history is priceless.

    I’m local and my memory was driving by the first shop back in the day and seeing a race car sitting outside with people working on it. I hope you do a video on the Henderson Racing team next door.They have a great BGN history and still run a truck.

    I may be twice as old as you guys are but I am very grateful for these memories being brought back with these history lessons with legends of the sport from years past. During this era I was already a full fledged Earnhardt fan but watching the Morgan McClure era of super speedway racing was some of the best times in the history of the sport. That being said back in the day we were 100% against the Restrictor plate and caried that negativity for years. Thanks again guys. Keep up the good work!

    My goodness you two... awesome video as always, thankyou!!! Just want to say that every now and then a channel comes along that really states what matters, is relevant to a persons likes and beliefs, and you Mitchell and Logan have done that and continue to do this. The stories you bring us is truly on the level of a National Geographic level as far as importance. It's like sitting on the porch with your Grandpa or retired uncle who was there, been there ,done that, Hell ya, Got that T-Shirt!!!. The look on Mr.McLures face as he spoke is priceless. I grew up watching this era, Ernie ,Sterlin, Mark, hell I had foldgers coffe and wrangler wallpaper in my bedroom.... wish I had that now eh? Ya, I'm Canadian, lol. Anyways, love your channels, your stories and interviews... you two are a shining example of the next generation. God bless, and as always, Cheers from Canada(we got your back!).

I like the fact that your not just this pretty face hanging around, your smart and you're always thinking, its very impressive. Once again everyone is so relaxed around you two, thats a great affect to have on people. So impressed with you guys. Nice job on the Leather Honey promo too Mitchell. Great sponsor. Again THANK YOU for all this hard work you both do. I enjoyed this video so much. I'm still here at the end and I like you guys too.

    Me again! Ya'll Killed it again. I remember those last two shops very well. Seeing the second shop again triggered a memory. One of our visits Larry had just got a new motor coach and was showing it to us. He let us in. It was the fanciest thing i had ever seen at that time! I think it was right out front to the right of that gate you pulled in. Wonder if it was a Newel??

    I was a big Davey Allison fan and was pretty shocked when Yates hired Irvan in mid season in '93. I never felt good about it then and now, hearing Mr McClure tell how it came about, I'm pretty disappointed in how Irvan left the 4 team. Pretty shabby way to treat the team that made him so successful. I bet that '94 Daytona 500 win with Irvan running 2nd was kinda sweet for the Morgan McClure boys

    You and Logan have a blessed day it's so nice to see your generation appreciate the 90s NASCAR era when it was one of the best things when it started in the late mid 80s through the mid-90s I think it was NASCAR shining moment of its history or fans really could enjoy it
